Austen is taken aback as we see him tell her that he loves her too... but like a sister
Spoilers for 'Winter House' Episode 2 'Cold Weather, Hot Secrets'
'Winter House' returned with the second episode of the series and there's already enough drama to go around for everyone in the room. Scandal, sex, love triangles, and fights are all to be expected from the raunchy show.
The Bravo reality series will follow the cast of 'Southern Charm' and 'Summer House' along with some new friends as they take a vacation in Vermont. One of the cast members is Austen Kroll of 'Southern Charm' who looking to have some fun with the single ladies. But new flings can either be tricky or fun and this man walks a close line between the two. Read on to know what happened in the second episode and how fans reacted.
The premiere of 'Winter House' saw all the cast arrive except for Lindsay Hubbard who'd be arriving later. Austen Kroll her longtime friend was especially looking forward to her arrival, but his behavior and words seemed to indicate he liked her more than a friend. They have always been in relationships with this being the first time they were both solo at the same time. Austen had been all nervous and excited about her arrival and may have wanted to give them a shot at being together. He later went on to make out with Ciara Miller in the episode.
In the second episode, Lindsay who arrived seemed to be into Austen as well. As the two catch up, Austen tells her about the rest and who have shown interest in each other. When he said he made out with Ciara and is interested in doing so again, Lindsay visibly did not like him saying that. Another 'Winter House' member Craig Conover had been implying to Austen right from the start that Lindsay loves him and would leave any other boyfriend to be with him. Austen didn't really take this seriously at the time. As the day progressed we see Lindsay getting drunk and throwing herself at Austen acting all lovey-dovey towards him as he wards her off. The night ended with her confessing that she is in love with him and that it's true and not just the liquor talking. Austen is taken aback as we see him tell her that he loves her too... but like a sister.
This was quite the backtrack for Austen who has also hooked up with her years ago. Lindsay quite obviously was left speechless. We also see Ciara not like the situation as she is interested in Austen as well. Fans didn't like the way Austen dealt with the situation and questioned why the women were even into him. Here's how they reacted.
A fan commented, "@[email protected] Can you ask Austen, if Ciara wouldn’t have come to the winter house, would he have treated Lindsey differently and possibly pursued something more? #WWHL #WinterHouse". Another viewer said, " #WinterHouse Austen is a tool. @LindsHubbs you can do better!". A user commented, " Austin is such an ass. #WinterHouse"
A fan said, "Austin is definitely not giving the answers Lindsay wants to hear. #WinterHouse". Another user said, "Like a sister #Winterhouse". A viewer commented, " Austen please you don’t and can’t love her like a sister. you’ve had SEX!! #WinterHouse".
